7. Vehicle Equipment

  • You may not drive or move any loaded vehicle on the highway if the load is not secure. The load must not be able to drop, shift, leak, or otherwise escape.
  • You must use a close-fitting cover when hauling loads which could fall or blow onto the roadway. Examples: dirt, sand, lime-rock, gravel, silica, trash or garbage.
  • Every truck carrying logs or pulpwood must use proper equipment, including lock chains that will securely fasten the load.
